It is about believing without seeing.
It is a process. A journey. An experience.
That’s exactly what Mitch Albom captures in Have a Little Faith, a tender story about three very different men wrestling out their faith, their God, and their own life-story.
“It begins with an unusual request: an 82-year-old rabbi from Albom’s old hometown asks him to deliver his eulogy.
Feeling unworthy, Albom insists on understanding the man better, which throws him back into a world of faith he’d left years ago. Meanwhile, closer to his current home, Albom becomes involved with a Detroit pastor – a reformed drug dealer and convict – who preaches to the poor and homeless in a decaying church with a hole in its roof.
Moving between their worlds, Christian and Jewish, African-American and white, impoverished and well-to-do, Mitch observes how these very different men employ faith similarly in fighting for survival: the older, suburban rabbi, embracing it as death approaches; the younger, inner-city pastor relying on it to keep himself and his church afloat.
Have a Little Faith is a book about a life’s purpose; about losing belief and finding it again; about the divine spark inside us all. It is one man’s journey, but it is everyone’s story.”
Have a Little Faith is a simple but profound story, perfect for a winter afternoon read by the fire. It isn’t too heavy and yet isn’t at all fluff, drawing you into living a life of faith.
